So, I saw your post in reddit, and realized I had an RB Angler Pox list, and a Mono Red LD list, but not a Mono red Pox/Ponza/Stax/Crack the Earth list (I believe this archetype is closer to Ponza and to a lesser degree Pox, since we don't play any prison pieces to be Stax, and we don't play typical LD spells as, for instance, Mono Black LD).
Anyway, I decided to put up a rough, unpolished decklist which I might try, and might give you some ideas for your own deck. Goldfishing it a bit, it seemed slightly more consistent because of the higher mass of cantrips, and lower land count. Take a look, and tell me whatcha think. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/mono-red-ldpoxcrack-the-earth/
Main changes are Akki Blizzard-Herder replacing Raze, since we can break akki's simmetry, but raze's gonna always be a 2 for 1, a higher mass of mana stones and cantripping artifacts, to keep the card flow, and have some mana sources after trembling and akki'ing, and finally Goblin Grenade/Heartfire which will sac our goblins to remove annoying creatures or burn our opponent's face.
The deck probably needs some more removal, and ways to get rid of wide boardstates, like your mainboard Electrickery, also doesn't have much of a board presence or a clear finisher as the RB version (you can check mine if you want https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/angler-pox/)
Finally, in case you wanna take a look, here's my creatureless mono red LD list, which I'll be updating anyday soon. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/creatureless-ponzaland-destruction/

I. Love. Goblin decks.
And this is a good one.
Next I would recommend Furious Assault. You're heavier on token production than creature spells, true, but the idea of any weenie deck is a-little-at-a-time, so since you're casting creatures pretty much every turn, it would help. Also synergies somewhat with Fires of Invention, and Torbran, Thane of Red Fell.
Lastly, you have a lot of mana ramp, but a somewhat low mana curve. I like the suggestion of Winter Orb mentioned earlier, but also I might include some amount of land destruction. Your opponents will need their land more than you do. Cheap spells like Raze and Tremble, permanents like Shivan Harvest, and bigger spells such as Tectonic Break, just to list a few examples. You might even be better served to use these in place of some of the mana ramp you're running, and could include Aether Vial to compensate.
Sorry for the novel. Looks pretty awesome already.

Have you considered Goblin Grenade as a finisher, for the last few points of damage, when it no longer matters if you have goblins left? I could see that being more effective than Goblin War Strike. Goblin Patrol was a card I used in highschool, when I mostly played Yugioh. It won me a fair number of games, since nobody had removal, but it's still a playable card, maybe for a sideboard? Oh, Goblin War Buggy is useful, sideboard material too maybe.
Deck looks very fun, I loved echo, I think it got ignored because of how good the rest of it's block was, making it look bad in comparison. People who were poor though, we had to learn to love Echo, because we couldn't afford the borked stuff WotC was printing then.
